KABUL, Nov 19 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday death sentences imposed by Iran over unrest after disputed elections in June were "distressing".

"It is a very unfortunate, distressing development to see these sentences handed down in Iran, imposing the death penalty on people who participated in expressing their opposition to the government in demonstrating in the streets," Clinton told reporters in Kabul during a visit to Afghanistan.

Iran unrest death sentences "distressing" - Clinton

I truely wonder how that could be while as we speak the US is killing hundereds of innocent pakistani and Afghani civilians daily, not to mention what is happenning in Iraq and what has already happened in these countries in the past eight and some years.

The white house must all of sudden realized that the Iranian blood is red as oppose to green in other countries, no?
